    [Success] Music Production w/ Sierra + GA-Z170X-GAMING 7 + GTX 1050 Ti + Thunderbolt Guide

    Benjamin— I don’t have the shutdown or any obvious USB issues, though I did find my usb3 performance lackluster compared to an esata connection when I was editing off an external drive. I chalked it up to usb data transfer being packet based as opposed to streaming a la esata or thunderbolt...

    Finally got my "broadcom" board in the mail (seems bootleg if you ask me, but whatever, it works) and after a bit of doing, I got iMessage working using all "idiots" guide found on this site. That said, in the last couple weeks, following the 10.13.3 update, I basically started over to deal with...

    Learning from my mistakes— upgrading to 13.3.3

    So, I’ve solved my own problem and everything works great again, but I don’t know functionally what I was doing wrong/right to get to this point. That said, I’d love to know what was up with my build for my future knowledge and so I can assist others in the future... So, here goes: When I was...

    Huh. Sorry to hear about your audio situation. I’m using High Sierra over here and the audio just works. My initial MultiBeast build included the Realtek 100/et al drivers, that’s all i did. Hmm. Going to install the specter patch this weekend, will be interesting to see what that does to my...

    Less so esata card, more like an adaptor... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005E2Y3DE/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 This works by simply extending a couple of the Sata ports on the Mobo to a pci card slot cover. Just a note, if you use m.2 storage on this Mobo, you’re giving up a Sata Channel, so...

    I also went for the line-out only solution on my motherboard because I run all my audio through a full sized mixer (I'm a video editor), but I also added a $7 USB audio adaptor to the back of my build, the addition of which gave me a headphone jack with audio control (Sabrent Aluminum USB...

    I haven't tried to get it working 100% because I'm waiting on this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Broadcom-BCM94360CD-802-11ac-1750Mbps-Desktop-PCi-E-WiFi-Adapter-Hackintosh-BT/132303186559?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 That said, I logged into icloud because I use it with...

    ... and I realize that you already sorted your issue, but I’m leaving my comment in case it helps someone else... Also, neither here nor there, I’m using the 17,1 profile. I’ve got a very similar setup and had similar problems with my initial setup... my mistake, I forgot step 13 from...

    I didn’t try it because thunderbolt worked out of the box with this board.

    Well, this thread convinced me to take on building my own customac with essentially this build (though I went with a 1050 ti ftw and m.2 drives), and on my third attempt I got the rig up and running... with audio following a different path... It is awesome. Haven’t bothered with iMessage yet...
